Two women were injured in an ATV crash near Lake Sara over the weekend.

Effingham County Sheriff John Monnet said the crash occurred at 1:36pm Saturday near the intersection of 1400th Avenue and Lake Sara Road on the south side of the lake.  Monnet said the ATV ran off a 15- to 20-foot cliff and into a wooded area.

The operators of the ATV...31-year-old Abigail Montgomery and 32-year-old Jillian Metzger, both of Effingham...were both injured.  Montgomery was admitted to St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham for treatment of broken bones.  Metzger was airlifted to Carle Hospital in Urbana, but Monnet said the report indicates she has been released from the hospital.
